I’m shocked and appalled—a new poem…
Was that before or after I pushed the line of late 70s Oldsmobiles over the crest of the hill?
The couple in their muted earth-tone power suits barely got out of the way in time.
The entire trail, from windy incline to steep, straight drop, was already at a standstill.
Three o’clock comes early, and I seem to wake up for it every night.
But I’ll be damned if I’m ever fully awake before nine.
I am a creature of habit, however weird the habit may be.
That doesn’t explain, however, why it’s so windy out today.
Either way, this new case has plenty of openings.
